Ailo will get international IFA views on rule changes

The Association of International Life Offices has commissioned cross-border consultancy and research firm Acuity Consultants to engage with 20 key international advisers for its consultation into regulatory changes.

Acuity will meet with about 20 firms in Europe, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore between March and May to seek their views on how they expect regulatory changes to affect their businesses in the next few years.

During a series of face-to-face meetings with the chief executive, managing director or principal of the adviser firm, Acuity will seek responses to a range of alternative potential regular-premium product structures. It will feed individual findings back to Ailo for discussion with its member companies.

Acuity says the adviser input is unlikely to result in immediate changes but is expected to feed into the strategic planning and product development of the individual Ailo member companies and will be followed by further consultation at a later date.
